What tree/plant are these seeds from and how do I grow them?

Posted: 02/03/2017 at 18:47

They look like ash tree seeds to me.  i would expect a high proportion of them to germinate and you will have eight saplings with the potential to grow into large forest trees. 

Id rather leave them be and have a look on our seed swap thread for something you can sow and grow to its full potential

Obbelix - I try cooking large batches in order to freeze some  - quite often a whole batch disappears into OH - he is a skinny fellow with hollow legs

That would be to make sure they matched for surface/grain and colour - one slightly paler door from another batch would really look awful - it's the sort of service I'd expect from a top notch supplier and not necessarily from B&Q - I'm impressed.

Pruning buddlia

I heartily agree Verdun - a few minutes deadheading buddleia once a week kept mine flowering into November last year

Tomatoes - time to sow!

I always sow my outdoor ones in April too - absolutely no point in starting earlier - they just get pale and lanky and floppy with having to be on the dining room windowsill for too long.  I've always had good crops from plants sown in April so I'm not going to change now

That happened to me a few years ago - an eight setting dinner service and accompanying cutlery arrived as expected, followed a few days later by another complete set. They said it would cost them more for me to return the extra set and told me to keep them - great to have a spare set to cover breakages in the future 

Pressure Washer

i noticed a Lidl tv ad that said it'll be stocking pressure washers ... next week or the week after ... I used to be sceptical about the quality of Lidl offers of electrical equipment etc, but other folks seem to think they're good value

Just thought I'd mention it in case anyone's interested in checking out a possible bargain

so much temptation!
